Blogger’s Quilt Festival – Spring 2010

Posted on May 21st, by Amy in Bloggers Quilt Festival. 661 comments

Welcome to the third Blogger’s Quilt Festival!  I’m so glad that you are here – and I hope that you plan to enter a quilt in the Festival! Everyone is welcome to participate, this is a relaxed festival with no judging, no gloves, and beverages are allowed, encouraged even!  :)

Many “Thank You’s” go out to our sponsors! They have been fun and gracious to work with in the weeks leading up to today.  And the prizes they are offering are so generous!  Be sure to visit each of the shops as you enjoy the show.  They each have a button to the right, and I have a list of prizes below the entries.

I have been so thankful to have my laptop while getting the details together this time around and I cannot wait to sit on the couch and take in all the inspiration!  I hope you have a comfy seat too – this may take a while.

While you are blog hopping – let me know if you see a quilter you would like to see featured on my blog.  I plan to continue the Friday features after the festival and always need more nominations!

Are you ready!?

To Participate : :
1 – Write a new post (old posts will be deleted).  Share one quilt, and it’s story.  Why you made it, why it is special to you, what you learned about quilting/yourself while making it.  The quilt doesn’t have to be brand new, never seen before on you blog – show what you like!

2 – In your post link back to the festival (posts without a link will also be deleted).  You can do this with a button, just copy and paste the code into your post, if all else fails.

3 – Share a link to your post, in the mr linky – be sure to post to that specific post please.  Right click on your post title, to copy link address, then paste it in the linky.

4 – Leave me a comment to be entered into giveaways.  Maybe you can tell me approximately how many quilts you have made so far.  Or if you finished a quilt just for the Festival.  Or how many quilts you have on your to do list.  It’s fun to learn something about you as I read all the comments :)

5 – Visit all the other quilters sharing their quilts and be inspired!

6 – If you are on flickr, consider adding your entry to the Group Pool, it’s great to see all the quilts in the gallery.

  1. Sorry, looks like I posted twice, it was being weird? I am 3 and 6…could you delete the 6 for me? Sorry about that. cant wait to check out all the prizes!

  2. I can't wait to get hopping! This is going to be a fun week! Thanks Amy for all the work you do to make this a great Festival!

  3. Thank you for putting all this together again Amy, such a fun idea.

    Errm…….I've lost count of how many quilts I've made so far, probably in the region of 30 or so!

    My quilts to do list is probably about the length of a piece of string :P

  4. Hi Amy,
    Thanks again for organising the Blogger's Quilt Festival. This is the second festival in which I have participated – I am looking forward to looking at the many quilts.

  5. Thank you for organising and hosting this fun virtual festival of quilts.
    Enjoy the hopping and have a wonderful week!

  6. Thanks for organizing this! I haven't entered previously but am glad that I heard about it in time this time around!

    And to answer the questions… I've made four quilts total (two of them I don't really count since they were t-shirt quilts. I do have four quilts being worked on now… one that I'm absolutely in love with – but that I only started yesterday!

    I'm so excited to learn more about everyone else's quilts!

  7. Thanks for hosting another festival Amy,I can't wait to see all the quilts! I've never counted how many quilts I've made, probably more than I need but not more than I want. Happy Weekend!!

  8. This is so great Amy – I think I have about 7 quilts I'm working on right now – ha ha – do you think that is too many?!

  9. Thanks again for a great job – am looking forward to loosing several days looking at all the great stuff out there!

  10. I've been so looking forward to this, it's my first time! I didn't even know there was prizes :) Thanks so much Amy for organising this. Now I'm off to go blog hopping!!

  11. Thank you for hosting this, Amy! This is my first time participating, and I'm very excited. I know I'm going to see some really amazing quilts. :-)

  12. Thanks for hosting this quilt festival. Can't wait to go blog hopping. Well, I have made alot of quilts and haven't really kept track of them so I don't have a count. I do have one mini quilt I need to finish the top, but I think 5 to quilt and bind.

  13. So much fun – thanks!!! Humm, something interesting about myself. I'm heading to the states for a vacation and my shopping list for quilting is longer than my shopping list for anything else!!!

  14. I'm linked up and ready to go. I'm really looking forward to this, last year's festival was so much fun!
    I have made 450+ quilts (lots of small ones) and have 3 top WIPs I'm working on right now.

  15. Amy, thank you for doing this again. I'm guessing I have made more than 50 quilts if a count the small ones in
    ; )

  16. I brought my laptop to an out-of-state wedding just so I could link up. So excited. Priorities.Hmmm…

  17. It's my first time at the festival! I've only made 6 quilts so never really had anything to share until now!

    The last two festivals have been great and I've seen so many wonderful quilts. Thank you so much for organising everything!

  18. Hooray !
    I've been checking all evening and night for this to be ready !
    Thanks for the virtual quilt show, Amy !
    Praise be the the LORD ! Let's just stop right now and thank HIM for our creative abilities !

  19. Thanks for hosting such a great event! So glad I could join in this year!!! Gonna go put the kettle on and get ready to sit and check all these out! Yay!!!

  20. I have linked my entry to the Blogger's Quilt Festival as directed. I've been waiting all day to post about my favorite quilt. Thanks Amy for the chance to share my Sylvia's Bridal Sampler quilt. I have many more that are still UFO's because I really worked intently on this quilt. I completed over 17 quilts last year, but my UFO's number in the hundreds.

  21. Thanks for organising this festival again Amy! Looking forward to seeing all the inspiring quilts out there. I have 2 quilt tops ready to quilt. Was hoping to get one of them done for this festival but will have to wait till next time.

  22. Hi Amy, I am new to blogging but have been quilting for almost 30 years. When I saw your post earlier in the week, I was so excited to join this. Last night I remembered I could get my post together and then publish it first thing this morning before I went to my volunteer job. I didn't have to wait another day! YAY!
    Thanks for doing this. It looks like FUN!
    I'm off to save the world, one critter at a time. :-)

  23. So excited to be a part of this again! Thanks so much for all your hard work getting this organised. Have been racing to finish a quilt in time to include, so now I am going to take a deep breath and settle down to look at all the gorgeous quilts as they get added!

  24. Too excited to read things properly. I think I must have made 40 – 50 quilts over the last 18 years – that doesn't seem very many compared to some people!

  25. I'm in again! I've made 120 quilts and have about 30 currently on-the go, partially-designed, or waiting their turn – most of which (plus a number of new additions) should be done by the end of the year.

  26. Thank you Amy. This is really fun and is my first because I only started quilting in Feb so I am a baby but here's a festival where the remedial quilters like myself get a chance to sit alongside the royalty of quilting which is really cool. My favourite quilts are the ones that get properly used – dragged around the house by the kids, dragged into the garden to make a tent, slid on down the stairs, occasionally weed on (you know kids…). Now I am going to take my laptop into the sunny garden (rare for the UK) and take a stroll around the festival. Maybe see you there for a cup of coffee!

  27. I'm so excited- my first quilt festival! I've done my post and I can't wait to see the festival exhibitors! Thank you Amy.

  28. Thanks so much Amy! This is my third time participating and hands down my most favorite way to meet new bloggers and be inspired!

  29. thanks Amy for hosting the festival again! I can't tell you how many quilts I have made cuz I can't believe it has been about 17 years of quilting passion all ready! too many to count!

  30. Thanks for hosting this again – great fun! It's not only fun to consider what I've made up that's meaningful, but also to realise how little I've actually finished this year (I guess it has really been about the process!)

  31. Thanks for organising the BQF! This is my first time entering.

    I've just finished this particular quilt but I have made around 10 quilts. I currently have a couple of tops waiting to quilt, a jelly roll quilt half pieced, and 2 baby quilts in progress as well. My list of quilts I want to make is long :)

  32. Thanks again for hosting Amy! I love looking at all the entry quilts, a fabulous and inspiring way to spend some time!

  33. Epic is what you are for organising this with everything else you do! I've followed your blog since the last festival now and always find it full of interest!

    I am so excited to participate this time now that I have a finished quilt (and half a dozen tops waiting to be quilted!)

  34. Thank you Amy for doing this festival, it is always so much fun to see all the wonderful quilts.
    Until now I finished around 15 big quilts, several wall hangings and pillows, and some very tiny quilts in 1/10 scale for my doll´s house.
    And of corse I have a lot of UFOs. :-)

  35. Hi Amy – First, I just want to say, "thank you" for once again putting this fabulous event together – I stayed up until midnight and then realized – duh! You're on MDT, not EDT – lol.

    How many quilts have I made? Probably around 50. How about the "to do" list? Probably 30 (and I've probably already got the fabric for most of them – yikes!)

  36. I have written my post, linked it, and now I am going to go and see and read about all the quilts of the others'! Thanks for your work again, Amy!

    I haven't finished a new quilt for the Festival, but am sharing an old favourite :-) Recently I was working on a present for my sister, a bag, which can be seen in my blog.

    Have a great weekend!

  37. Dear Amy, I only started visiting blogs a year ago, around the time you had the first BQF, and I was dazzled! Now a year later, with a fairly new blog, I cannot describe the thrill of being able to Thank YOU, and to be able to contribute my 2 cents.
    I started quilting when we moved to Cyprus, as I could speak no Greek and was in a general state of shell-shock! And quilting slowly passed from being therapy, to being a way to make friends, to the point that now I teach patchwork and quilting at the island's only QS.
    I have made many quilts, most of which have been gifts to loved ones and charity quilts. These days I hand-piece as it is more manageable with 3&4yr old boys! THANKS 4 Being such an INSPIRATION!

  38. I am so glad to be participating. This is a really great idea. Thanks for coordinating it! I got my rotary cutter for Christmas, 2009 and have been having so much fun since!

  39. This is simply AWESOME, Amy!!! Thank you for all the work, orginization and effort you put into this!!! I feel delighted to share in the Festival. : )

    BTW, I incorrectly linked entry #65 to my Fall BQF post. I sent you an email about my mistake. If you could delete it I would be SEW grateful. I apologize for the inconvenience.

    ENJOY the BQF!!!

  40. Thanks Amy for organizing this Festival! I just posted my link. My blog is in French and there's a translation widget. I'm a beginning quilter and the quilt I featured is my first one.

  41. Hi Amy, I tried to stay up late and be one of the first links but then I realized that you are in a different time zone :) I am linked and excited to look around at everyone else's quilts.
    Thanks for organizing!

  42. Hi, Amy! Thanks for organizing this! I wish I could tell you how many quilts I have made, but I have lost count!
    I am looking forward to seeing everyone's quilts and reading their stories.

  43. All these wonderful blogs. thanks for organizing this Amy.

    And as to your questions: I can't remember how many quilts I made, maybe around 20 or so, and given that they are all reversible quilts these days they should count twice, shouldn't they?

    I am working on about 5 projects at the moment, as I do everything by hand the quilting takes me ages. But I have already cut the fabric for the next 2 quilts. It's an obsession that's for sure.

  44. Hi Amy! Thanks so much for encouraging us to enter even if we aren't accomplished quilters! Quilts are beautiful, functional works of art and I love to see what everyone has done!

  45. Thank you for sponsoring this… how fun! For those of us in other countries it is a great way to network with other quilters. Greetings from a cold, rainy day in Quito, Ecuador!

  46. Hi Amy! I'm so excited to be involved in the Blogger's Quilt Festival! It's one of the reasons I started a blog this year. I've been quilting for one year now and the second quilt I made was your zig zag quilt a long. It's proudly displayed on my quilt rack and a favorite around here for snuggling on the couch. Thanks for always being so inspiring.

  47. I've got my cafe au lait here and I'm ready to start reading! Thank you for doing this because I have found so much inspiration and made lots of new blog friends through the quilt festival! It must be a lot of work to put on, but it is a weekend full of fun to see what everyone has made.

  48. Posted a link to my quilt! I can't wait to start blog hopping and looking at all the beautiful quilts out there

    Thanks for hosting this Amy!

  49. Let me add my thanks!

    I'm a newbie when it comes to the art of quilting and was very nervous about even thinking about jumping in, but I got over myself…{wink}

    I shared one of my first quilts and it's one of my favorites.

    I'm excited to see everyone's contributions!

  50. Hi Amy,

    I've posted about my quilt and linked to this page. I am looking forward to spending a lovely weekend looking at quilts. Thank you so much!

    The Patchery Menagerie

  51. Amy, thanks so much for this gargantuan effort; you're one-of-a-kind!

    I've finished 10 quilts. But I must be a "real" quilter now, because I have 1 top that needs to wait for Next Steps, 4 actively in the works, and about 45 more brewing in my head!

  52. Yeah, I love quilt festival! This is my second time joining in and had so much fun last time. Such a great way to see so many inspiring quilts and make some new friends along the way. Thanks for putting it all together Amy!

  53. Thanks, Amy. I just posted about the comfort quilt I recently made for a co-worker. I look forwarding to viewing all of the quilts in the festival. Karen

  54. This is so exciting to be a part of! You are so organized! Now I'm off to look at all the beautiful quilts…

    Jennifer :)

  55. Thank you, Amy! Excellent, well thought out guidelines. I have made more quilts to give away than keep. I just started making for my house and my family – and love it!Looking forward to viewing as many quilts as I can. The prizes are awesome too. Thanks for helping build a vibrant quilting community in blogland!

  56. Thanks, again, for the BQF, Amy! If you get my FlickrMail, no need to reply, but it does have my email address.

  57. Amy thanks for organizing the Quilt Festival. I hope I did things correctly. I created my post and put a link to the festival.

  58. I love seeing all the quilts in the links! Really inspiring! I have only completed 2 quilts with a baby quilt as my next to-do. Maybe I should quit clicking on links and get back to sewing!

  59. What a wonderful idea, thank you for host this festival. Have wonderful weekend. Now for the fun, visiting

  60. Hi Amy. Thanks for hosting this fun event again. I'm spotlighting my favorite wall hanging made this year (so far). It incorporates my two loves – cross stitch and hand quilting.

  61. Thanks for doing this again, Amy, and thanks to your prize sponsors, also. I just did my post about a mystery quilt I made and I put my link here in your Mr. Linky list! Have a great weekend.

  62. So happy the festival has arrived! I have already seen so many amazing quilts this early on Friday morning, so I am excited for all this wonderful inspiration. I've already seen a few I would like to try. Thanks Amy!

  63. Yippee! The Bloggers Quilt Festival has begun! I have no doubt that there will be enough links to keep me busy all summer.

    Thank you for putting this all together and being the hostess with the mostest, Amy! The sponsor giveaways look amazing, too :-)

    My summer quilt project will be to work on my granddaughter's quilt which will have a flower theme. It was to be her baby quilt and with her turning TWO this summer I think I had better get going on it! :-)

    Tammy ~@~

  64. Amy thanks so much for the Festival!! I am a new quilter but have made 3 1/2 quilts. I would love to be entered in your give aways and can't wait to see the quilts!!

  65. Thanks for hosting this fun event again Amy! My blog reader is so full right now so it's a miracle that I happened to see your blog just in time to enter. Now I just need to find a rainy day to sit and go through all the wonderful entries that will be here!

  66. I'm so excited to enter this time around! It's going to fun seeing what everyone has entered. But first I must grab my cup of coffee….

    Thanks again for hosting this Amy!

  67. Just posted my link. I'm kind of bummed…I REALLY wanted another quilt finished for it, but oh well. Next time for sure!!!

  68. Hey Amy,just wanted you to know I'm having so much fun I don't want to leave my computer. Oh well I have to but I'll be back, thanks so much this is fun!!

  69. I am so excited to be participating for the second time. I can't thank you enough. The Quilt Festival inspired me to start blogging!!

  70. Thank you again Amy for hosting this incredible Quilt Festival. I so look forward to visiting the blogs and piling on the inspiration. There are some amazing quilters out there! As far as ufo's, well I probably have about 10 that need to be quilted :-( But the good news is, this is the last year of teaching my last child. So hopefully I can start working on my unfinished quilts soon :-D

  71. Thank you Amy! Just entered my quilt and I would say I've made about 100 quilts so far and probably have enough fabric in my stash for another 100! Yikes – better get sewing!

  72. Amy, Thanks again for hosting this! It's such a fun event and I'm way stoked to be a part of it again this year! Can't wait to see all the great inspiration!

  73. Thanks for hosting this great event, Amy! I know it's a lot of work, but it creates a great sense of community! I can't wait to look at all the amazing things people have entered – and with 100 entries before 9am EDT on the first day, I have a feeling it's going to take a good long time!

  74. Hi Amy,

    I wish we lived closer. I finished the quilt in time for the festival. I had a bit of binding to finish yesterday, so I tried out your tutorial. I liked it. I have a quilt coming back to me next week so I am going to try out the whole binding done that way. Thanks for your amazing work.

  75. Hi Amy,
    The is my second entry in one of your Bloggers Quilt Festivals. Thanks so much for the opportunity to share my work.
    I have been creating textiles for more than 23 years now. I also teach quiltmaking throughout the Pacific Northwest. My entry, The Cow Pony, is a quilt I created to help me through a very difficult time in my life last year. I hope you will watch the slideshow of the making of this quilt.
    My Best To You,
    LuAnn in Oregon

  76. Amy, thanks for organizing this event again. And it is an event! So wonderful to have lots of participants with so many fabulous quilts.

  77. Thanks for putting together all the Quilt Festivals, Amy!
    Its nice to see so much support :)

    I´ve just shared my link!

  78. Thank you for organizing this quilt festival. It is a wonderful idea and I am loving all the quilts posted. I also as thrilled to be able to share my quilt story.

  79. I love this festival. Great job, Amy! And the prizes! Wowza! I'll keep my fingers crossed. Now, off to look at some beautiful quilts!!

  80. I just found you and I am so excited about this. What a great way to get so much quilting inspiration. I am going to post about my first quilt right now.

  81. This is exciting! Thanks for hosting this festival! I'm looking forward to seeing all the entries…

  82. What an awesome idea! Thanks for hosting this quilt festival. I'm really looking forward to seeing what everyone's made.

  83. Hey Amy…thanks again for hosting another year…can't wait to start reading all the entries!!!

  84. Hey Amy, this is the second time I've entered into one of your festivals. I'm looking forward to a weekend of FUN! Well, I've only made about 10 (?) quilts so far. I just wish I had more time to sew! LOL!

    Thank you for having this festival!

  85. Thanks for hosting this – it's only Friday morning, and so many have already signed up. Congrats on the sucess!

  86. Sweet! Made it through 145 links this morning. My quilt isn't quite ready for posting, but I should have it finished up by the weekend's close. *grin* I love the Festival! It's such fun to see everyone's work and meet new people. Thank you, Amy, for organizing!

    My tally is 5 finished quilts & 7 in progress since I started quilting in 2008 — I tend to get distracted…

  87. I'm so excited to be able to participate this time! I've only made 5 large quilts and 2 baby quilts so far, and I have one large quilt in the planning stages for this summer. Thank you so much for organizing this festival — I'm looking forward to a great weekend of inspiration!

  88. Thanks to you and all your sponsors for another fun quilt festival! I know I'll have lots of fun looking through all the beautiful quilts! I had a hard time picking one! I've made a lot, but I'm currently working on finishing one of the very first ones I started…

  89. Amy, thank you for organizing this fun event yet again, – and for thinking of it in the first place :-)

  90. Thanks for an opportunity to share my favorite project…for years I thought it would forever be an UFO…but thanks to blogs I was inspired to finish.

  91. Thank you so much for organizing this festival again this spring. This is my third season for entering a quilt. It's so much fun and I just love looking at all the beautiful quilts that others have made!

  92. Thanks for doing this again and letting me share my antique quilts. I was happy to see your post last week from HMQS with my antique hexagon quilt–glad you enjoyed my special exhibit. I think the antique quilts are a good contrast to the new ones.

  93. My quilt's posted on my blog. This is so much fun – there's a lot of fantastic stuff going on in the online and real quilting world at the moment, I can hardly keep up! Thanks for organising this festival Amy, it's great to see all the lovely work – fantastic goodies to be won too :)

  94. I'm so excited to be participating in this again… I can't wait to check out these great links! I have made 33 quilts in about 3 years. I have about 5 on my current to-do list and about 500 on my "someday" to-do list! After today, I will probably be so inspired it will be more like 5,000!

  95. Thanks for organizing. This post gave me a chance to reflect on all I've learned via blogs and the web, something I ought to do more often :)

  96. Thank you so much for such a wonderful festival! I have submitted a piece that has never been shown on American soil and holds dear memories for me.

    I have encouraged all my readers to make time to curl up with their laptops to enjoy this literal feast for the eyes!

    Again, thank you so much! I know the work that goes into such an event, online or not, and I appreciate all that you have done and continue to do!
    ~MaggieB @ Patchwork Quilting

  97. Thanks so much for hosting this again. It's such a joy and inspiration to visit all the lovely quilts and blogs!

  98. This is so fabulous! Thank you so much for organizing and hosting it again!! I'll get my post up in the next few days.

  99. This quilt is super special. Our DD#2 is at long last going to have a baby …. she just turned 35 and was told she'd never have a baby.

    Button is on my blog. I did Mr. Linky.

    Gosh I have no idea how many quilts I've made. I'm a charity quilter so I donate many quilts each year.

  100. Thanks again Amy, I've just posted my link. Had a hard time deciding which quilt. Working on an appliqued crib bumper at the moment. The quilts have been put to one side until the bumper gets done.

  101. Thank you, thank you! This is one of my favorite things about blogging: your quilt festival!! I have lost track of the number of quilts I've made but I have about 3 I need to finish up soon. Can't wait to check out all the links for great inspiration…

  102. okay I am going to give this a try. I will post later today (soon) my quilt. This is fun and I can't wait to see everyone's quilts. This is new to me, and I am loving it!!!

  103. Amy, Thank you so much for this festival! Last year, the festival inspired me to start my own blog. I've made about 15 quilts since I started quilting 7 years ago. I'm posting a quilt I made this winter. Thanks again! Lauren

  104. Wow I can't believe I am 184 and it isn't even 9 AM! :-) This has got to be the biggest festival yet! I don't know how you do it Amy!~ but thank you!!! As far as how many quilts I plan to make~~ loads more! :-))

  105. Thanks for hosting the Bloggers Quilt Festival. This is the first time I'm participating and am really eager to see everyone's entries. Going to go have a look now. :-)

  106. Thanks so much for doing this again! It's my favorite time of the blogging year.

    And, again, I managed to mess up my link – if you can delete my first link that would be great. The second one works fine :)

  107. Fun times! I wish that I even knew how many quilts I have ideas and fabric for, or that are started. . . TOO MANY to count! Thanks for putting this together! Love it!

  108. Amy, I have been inspired by the blogger's links on your old quilt festival posts for a long time, and I am very happy to be part of one this time around! I have been quilting since I was 20 with my mom. I made my first quilt on my own when I was 22 years old, a log cabin. I still have that quilt and it is on my youngest son's bed. My entry to the festival is my second quilt I made on my own and it resides on my bed. I took a long hiatus from quilting while my kids grew up, but when my oldest went to college, I heavily got into it. I have so many flimsy's ready to quilt now, the quilting is my least favorite part! Karin

  109. Thank you so much for this, Amy. It is awe-inspiring!!

    I've only completed three quilts, all of which have been given as gifts. One of these days, I will actually finish one that stays home with me!

  110. I love the idea of having hundreds of quilters sharing inspiration! I've only been quilting since November, and only had my own blog since April, but it's nice to know that there are people who are just as passionate about weird things (like fabric and quilts) as I am! Thanks for creating the Festival!

  111. I'm thrilled to be a part of this…and to see all the gorgeous quilts! Thanks for all of your work in coordinating this and to all of the sponsors.

  112. Okay, I think that I linked it right now. Sorry if it shows up twice. This is my first time and was too excited. Can't wait to visit and see all of the uber-cool quilts. Sew On!

  113. Thanks for putting this together, Amy! I can't wait to go through the links one by one and see all the lovely quilts.

    I've finished about eight or ten quilts and probably have about six quilts in various stages of construction going on right now.

    What a great list of giveaways your fabulous sponsors have donated! Fingers crossed!

  114. Thanks for doing this – it's my "FIRST TIME" putting one of my quilts out there. I liked the mental exercise of choosing the quilt and the why's behind the choice. Since my Bernina is out of service, this was a nice way to still enjoy quilting!

  115. I am currently only in the middle of two quilts. However I am needing to make 4 soon. I have a friend who is having a baby any day now, plus I promised my children I would get their quilts made.
    My daughter's is one of the top that is finished. It needs to be sandwiched, quilted and bound. However, I am no longer in love with the quilt and not dying to finish it. Which is probably why it has been sitting for four years! :P
    Thank you for organizing the Quilt Festival. I love it!

  116. Thanks so much for putting this together; as a brand new blogger I am soo excited to get out there, show off my stuff and see what everyone else is up to!! Come check out my new site! Thanks again!

  117. Hi Amy, Hope I'm doing this in the right order…..added my link, now my comment, then I'm going to post to my blog. This quilt festival is a great idea and it will be fun to take a tour through blogland next week and see all the quilts on display! Thanks for doing this! And thanks to the sponsors, too!

  118. I have enjoyed the Blogger's Quilt Festival before but never joined in. Thanks for hosting/organizing this. So fun!

  119. ohh Amy, this is so fun!!!!!!!!!!!
    Thanks for doing this amazing festival and thanks for counting me in. hugs!!

  120. Just posted my link! Fun!
    I have about 8 quilts that I have in the works, and more in my head :) there is never enough time!

  121. This is so fun! I'm excited to get through all these links. Right now I have many UFOs I am trying to finish up. My summer goal is to be done and caught up by fall.

  122. So many fantastic quilts to look at, I'm going to savor them after my kiddos are tucked in tonight.
    I hope I managed to navigate through the linky thingy the right way Amy. Thank you for doing this again.


  123. HI Amy,
    The festival is off to a great start- I know that there will be lots of wonderful quilts to see. This is the third time I have entered a quilt and it always is a great opportunity to meet new bloggers who share a love of quilting.
    Thanks for all your hard work organizing the festival.
    Warmest regards from Western Canada,

  124. Whew! Made it just in time to join in the fun. My blog posts these days are few and far between, but I just finished a special quilt this month for my son and wanted to share, only to find it was the last day to enter the Festival. Great timing! Can't wait to see all the beautiful quilts. I enjoyed it so much last time. Thanks for everything you do!

  125. I'm so glad I could be a part of the BQF! Thanks for hosting it, as I imagine it was a lot of work! Something about me…I've only made about 12 or 13 quilts, so as you can tell, I'm fairly new to quilting. I'm also addicted to it…

  126. I posted my quilt, Amy! Thanks so much for organizing this festival. I love seeing everyone's quilts and finding new blogs!

  127. I am so excited. This is my first time entering any of my quilts. Thanks for all the other quilts they are awesome.

  128. Thank you for organizing this awesome Festival! I might have to take a day off to just go to all the blogs and see all the quilts! Polly

  129. This is my third Quilt Festival and this time I'm featuring my first original design. Hope you like it!

    Can't wait to start visiting all the other blogs…starting NOW!

  130. Thanks for hosting again! This is my third time posting for the quilt festival. I have made somewhere around 200 quilts, but all my festival entries are quilts I've made for my daughter.

  131. Thanks so much for hosting this great festival! I love to see what other quilters are making and be inspired by their work. I've been quilting for a long time, but every day I find something new on flickr to inspire me and make me want to start a new project!

  132. you can delete 176, bethany because I didn't have a direct link…I misread your post, my fault not yours so I redid the linky with a direct link!!!

  133. Amy, Thanks for doing this! I did it backwards…left the comment and then posted….but now it's done right. I am very fond of the little quilt that I shared. I love making small wall quilts and especially enjoy working by hand. If I count the tiny dollhouse baby quilts that I've made, the number is about 75. I enjoy sharing them at local quilt guilds and in programs for church women's groups. :-)

  134. Just posted to my second blog-an antique inspired quilt I made for the HMQS charity fundraiser. I made 1 quilt and my sister made 2 and we raised about $300.00

  135. This is so fun! I can't wait to see all the quilts! I have completed seven quilts and have about 10 I'm working on, not counting the other 77 ones I'm planning in my head!

  136. I just posted about a quilt I'd been meaning to blog. Thanks for giving me this chance to share! I've made about 30 projects in the last 13 years. I'm not too prolific, but I love it!

  137. I have never joined in the festival before and hope I did it right. It is great to see so many quilts and read their stories. Thank you so much for the opportunity to share mine. Elaine

  138. I have enjoyed the last 2 Blogger Quilt Festivals. I am glad that I was able to participate this time. Keep up the great ideas. It is so nice to have so many quilters in one place at one time.

    Just Another Quilter

  139. I haven't finished a quilt yet, so I'm entering my first ever finished quilt top.

    Now, I'm going to spend the rest of my day (or weekend?) reading all the entries for this festival!

  140. Hi Amy, Thanks for organizing this great show. I'm not posting anything – no blog, new computer, never posted on flickr, shy, etc. But I am really enjoying looking at what other people have posted and I'm trying to comment on them all. I haven't finished any full size quilts on my own yet although I've got six on the go right now. I've worked with some quilting friends to make quilts to give away for co-workers, made lots of baby quilts and other things like bags, wallhangings and table runners. The first quilt I ever started was the year I was married (33 years ago). It was an applique quilt and thinking back on it the colours were ghastly – green on green, solid fabrics. Anyway it burnt when our home burned about six months after we were married. It was about two thirds done. I didn't quilt again until about five years ago. Thanks for a chance to win one (or more :)) of those fabulous prizes.

  141. What a great Idea, I love it…loving all the inspiration from here in the UK where patchworkers seem to be a bit few and far between…
    loving sharing my favourite quilt…

  142. This is such a great opportunity to view the work of other bloggers. I've written my post and linked up! Now I'm going to surf…even though I should be cutting out the 6" squares I need for my Scrappity-Do-Dah quilt!

  143. Thanks for organising this again Amy! It was great fun last year. As you can see on my blog, I nearly didn't take part but managed after all even if late! Good luck with all your admin and hope everyone has a great time!

  144. Thanks so much for hosting this quilt festival! I'm not sure how many quilts I have made, but one interesting fact is that I've never made one for myself. I need to fix that. :)

  145. This is such an awesome idea. I'm a relatively new quilter and am currently working on mostly baby quilts. I love all the fabric possibilities for little kids. Thanks for the inspiration.

  146. Awesome Amy!! Thank-you so much for doing this. This is my first ever quilt festival – either online or real-life – how fun! I'm very new to quilting, just started this year and have made about 4 quilts so far and 3 doll quilts on top of that. It's very addicting – i think you could safely say i'm not giving up this sport! :)

  147. What a wondeful group of posts and giveaways. I'm working on my first quilt now, a hand pieced grandmother's flower garden using the paper piecing method and 30's reproductions…did I mention yet that it is king sized? Yeah I've got 61 of the 80 "flowers" done and am starting on the pathway. For a first project I figure it is pretty big so am not feeling bad that it has gotten this far in about 8 months. I will have it done before the end of the year so I'm excited!

  148. I browsed through so many of the quilts from last year that I decided to take up quilting!! 6 quilts and one year later, I finally got to participate:)

  149. I've made 17 quilts and have 3 waiting for me to finish the binding. I also have more quilts on my to-do list than I could possibly count! ;)

  150. Thanks for doing the Festival again, it´s so fun!

    I don´t really know how many quilts I´ve done, but approximatly around 30, and the pile of UFO´s is about 15 tops :) It seems like ideas of new projects must be realized before endings of the old ones :)

  151. Oh boy, inspiration city around here! I have about four trillion projects to finish or start but I know I'll find some more to add to my list. I need a butler!

  152. Finally able to leave a comment. Thanks so much for hosting this and I am really enjoying visiting new to me blogs.

  153. This is my first time participating in this Festival and how much fun this is! I've completed 140 quilts (of various sizes … some small, some VERY LARGE) and probably have half as many on my To Do list. :-) I love sewing, quilting … any creative sort of needlework … it feeds my soul and makes me happy. (which, in turn, makes me a happy wife and mother. :-) )

  154. Hi Amy, thanks for hosting! Since the first of the year I have made 5 quilts, in my lifetime I am not sure how many; I stopped quilting when the kids were really little and life was to crazy, but now that they are a bit older (and learning to sew themselves)I have jumped back into quilting with both feet! So many WIP going thru my head that I have listed them on my blog so I can keep track.

  155. Thank you for hosting this festival. It will be cool to look through everyone's entries.

    The quilt I linked to is my 4th or 5th quilt. I am now working on my 7th or so. I have many many more on my wish list to do. I'm currently working on one with Wonderland fabrics from Momo.

  156. Hi Amy! This is such a good idea– and so fun! I even made a new blog just so I could participate (family blog is private ;) I've made about 35 or 40 quilts and always have 4 or 5 either in the planning or making stage. Ahhh…quilting. :)

  157. Thanks for all your effort in putting together this festival where I can see so many creative people and wonderful works they've done.

    My link is posted! (and I've joined and am following on FB and Twitter)

    Hurray for quilters!

  158. Thanks for hosting the Quilt Festival. I just made my 1st quilt festival post!

    I have been quilting for about 1 year. In that year I have made 12 quilts. I have so many on my todo list it isn't even funny…I just can't seem to stop adding new projects and buying new fabric!

  159. Thanks for doing this again Amy. This is the second time for me…great fun. I picked a quilt that had been in my closet probably since I made it…along with about 15 other quilts!

  160. Yay – I'm linked! Thanks Amy, this is always such fun – I'm going to be joined at the hip to my computer for the next few days/weeks/months, lol. I always enjoy this so much!

    I thought about making a quilt just for the Festival, but as always I left it too late, lol. I ended up using one that taught me the most, and it's a definite favorite.

  161. Thanks for all the hard work you are doing. Hope you feel better soon! This is my first time in your festival and I must admit that I'm a bit nervous about it.

  162. Hi Amy,
    I'm going to be updating my post through the week as I work on this new quilt. This is a work in progress.
    Thanks for all you do.
    all the best,

  163. Lovely to enter again and be aprt of this fantastic event.

    Something interesting….. I've made about 50 quilts in the last 5 years (24 last year), I currently have 13 in progress (excluding 2 ofr customers) and I just joined my 6th quilting bee.

  164. This is so much fun; my very first quilt festival! Can't wait to visit everyone's blogs and see what they've been up to!

  165. Thanks again…I know how much work this has to be! I've posted, added my link, and now I'm off to look at some of the other quilts! Have a great day!

  166. thanks so much Amy for hosting another fab BQF! Right now, I'm working on a flea market fancy giant hex quilt, I finally took the plunge and siginificantly cut into my FMF stash. It'll probably be the quilt I enter in the next BQF. :)

  167. This is such a great idea, Amy – thanks for the opportunity to share my quilt! Oh yeah – before I forget – about those prizes – pick me pick me pick me!! ;-)

  168. Thanks for hosting this festival, Amy! What a great idea!! And by the way – for those prizes – pick me! pick me!! ;-)

  169. Thanks Amy! I can't wait to see what everyone is showing this spring!

    I have no idea how many quilts I've made…I've been quilting for over 20 years now-but I can tell you its alot and the fun never stops. I'm always finding new things to try and new designs to challenge myself with.

  170. I just posted about this festival and my favorite quilt. Last time I had so much fun visiting all those blogs and have visitors from all over the world. Thanks for organizing this event once again, Amy!
    Greetings from Germany,

  171. Okay fine I am entering! :D I wasn't planning on it because I didn't think my quilt was good enough, but I decided what the heck! :D Thanks for doing this and your hard work!

  172. Thanks for organising the festival. This is my first participation. How many quilts I have made? I have counted about 2 but this is without the bags and other objects. How many quilts I have on my to do/wish list: probably an infinite number, which will get even worse after blog hopping during the festival…
    Celine in UK

  173. thanks for hosting. Now something about me…. I currently have 12 quilts in various stages of finishing. I'm not sure how it happened but WOW I need to stop acting on new ideas and just finish some of these.

  174. thanks amy for once again being the hostess with the mostess!! can't wait to look at all of wonderful quilts out there in blog land

  175. I just posted my link. This is my first time joining in the Blogger's Quilt Festival! I added my most recent finished quilt as it is my favorite thus far. It is the 9th quilt I've ever made, and my 6th quilt this year. I've made a personal goal to make 12 quilts this year, so I'm at the halfway mark. :) Looking forward to seeing all the other entries! Thanks!

  176. Thanks so much for organising this festival. This is my first one, and its great to get involved and see all the fantastic talent out there.

  177. I just posted my link. I am new to blogging and think this festival is really fun. Thanks for taking the time to do it.

  178. Hi Amy, I do love quilt show! Thanks for organizing this great event! I've been quilting for about 30 years and have made many, many quilts…some good ones and some, not so wonderful! But it has been a lovely hobby to have through the years.

  179. I love this quilt show! There are so-o-o many talented quilters out there in blogger land, this makes it easy to see so much eye candy.

  180. This is a wonderful and fun event! I'm thrilled to enter a quilt into the festival. I'm not sure how many quilts I've made to date, it's really about the process for me, not the quantity. I've been quilting for about 5 years and am always inspired by my fellow quilters from the online quilting community.

  181. Well imagine my lucky timing. I'm sewing binding on a quilt tonight/this weekend and will be able to write a post in time to make your deadline :).

    This will be my 4th quilt, the 2nd that is larger than a twin size quilt.

    I've got fabric sitting for 4 quilts which I hope to get to soon. Right now I seem to have a one year turn around on quilts (see my timing is very lucky, LOL) … I'd like to speed that up by a few months ;).

    Thanks so much … I can't wait to grab an iced tea and click through all the inspiration!!


  182. BTW, entry #286 was an error. So sorry, I'm not sure what to do about this. It was a link to my blog, not my blog post. #287 is correct.

  183. Thank you so much for hosting the BQF again. I appreciate all your hard work. I look forward to this each Quilt Market now. I just finished my biggest and bestest quilt… just in time for BQF!! Thanks so much for hosting, Amy.

  184. Hi there, thanks for organising this Blogger's Quilt Festival. I am a first time entry because I am very new to blogging. I have been working with textiles for the last 30 years but patch working for about 10 or so. I think I have made about 30 quilts and they are scattered all over my house. The hubby and kids roll themselves up in them over the winter and they are in every room of the house. Patch working is my refuge and I am totally addicted to buying more fabric and making new things. I have a stack of my husband's old shirts ready to be made into something – possibly squares made from triangles so the lines on the fabric nearly match up or the Indigo Points quilt from Fassett's latest book. There are usually a few things on the go at the same time. I only get weekends to really get stuck into my sewing and every week a new idea pops into my head. Some get made and some don't. It's all fun.

  185. Wow..this is my first time joining your festival. I have been quilting for about 37 years..forever, but new to blogging. Your blog and your festival are a delightful contribution to the quilting community. Thank you. Diane from Charlotte, North Carolina

  186. Amy, thank you so much for hosting this. This is actually my first time participating and I'm really excited about it!! It's always so refreshing to see all that inspiration!!

  187. Yay! I'm in! :) I'm thinking of making my next project a quilt for Reagan's bed (a full/queen). Nothing like jumping in with both feet huh? :D Have you ever used a duvet cover, added batting in between and then quilted it?? I found an awesome duvet cover and the thought crossed my mind. Not sure how it would work though….
    Thanks for working so hard to bring the festival to fruition. May God bless you tenfold (and give you health and rest!).

  188. I would LOVE to tell you how many quilts I have started or that are in the works, but I can't count that high….Honestly about 10, I don't count anymore though. THANKS for hosting, I enjoy this.

  189. Hi Amy! Once again, a great opportunity to see wonderful quilts and meet wonderful quilt bloggers! Thanks for all the hours you have put in to make this possible, and thanks to all the sponsers, wow! Great prizes. I have enjoyed the two previous Quilt Festivals very much.

  190. Thanks for hosting again..this is a great way to see whar everyone's doing..I have made over 100 quilts, I have just finished my Dear Jane which is on my blog..
    Now to check out other blogs.
    thank you Julia ♥

  191. Thanks Amy for organizing this festival. It is so much fun. I love to share my projects with others and seeing what others are making. It is very inspirational.

  192. What an amazing festival! Thanks Amy & all the sponsors for this event. I finished my festival quilt a few weeks ago, but I waited to post it until now. It's fun to be able to share something new… and find the inspiring works of other quilters I wouldn't normally cross paths with!

  193. Wow! This Bloggers' Quilt Festival has really grown. Already 289 before me on the first day. Thanks so much for hosting this again. I look forward to visiting lots of new bloggers.

  194. Thanks for hosting Amy. I've recently started quilting and actually only have one finished quilt top (and two that have been cut and are waiting for a beginning). I hope it's alright if I share a quilt that was made for me in my post. I love seeing everyone's projects and getting even more inspired (just need to find more time in the day).

  195. Something to keep me busy for the next few days. Can't wait to see all the pretty quilts. I've made probably 20+ easy minkee baby blankets that don't require quilting but probably between 10 and 15 real quilts. It is very addictive. Now that I'm retired I hope to do lots more and get better at my free motion quilting.

  196. There, I've done it. I've actually entered a quilt in a show of some sort, even if it is just online. Thanks for the fun and the chance to win!

  197. This is a great way to see all the great work everyone is doing. I've been piecing quilt for over 20 years and learning new and different things every step of the way. My aunt inspired and challenged me to find a better way of doing things other than hand piecing. I taught her to piece a log cabin by machine in 1988. I've since made around 40 log cabins.
    I made my first feathered star about a month ago and am experimenting with that. Quilting is exciting and quilters motivating!

  198. I had heard the buzz about this quilt festival, so I had to jump in and see what all the talk was about – what a wonderful resource and inspiration :) Thanks for hosting this!

  199. Hi Amy, I'm in again, but I did a typo for my blog name. It should be Notjustnat. Would you be able to retype it for me please? My number is 317 – thanks so much – great show again – Hugs Nat

  200. I just posted and added my link. Thanks for all your hard work to make this happen. I can't wait to go see what everyone has been up to!

  201. I love the festival! If I'd only finished all the intended projects in time! Thanks for all the fun. I love looking at all the wonderful quilts.

  202. Amy – thanks for hosting the festival, again. I can't wait to get home from Market and have the chance to browse through all the entries!

  203. Hi Amy, I am so excited you are doing the quilt festival again. All these wonderful quilts are inspiration for me to finish the 3 I have in the works. Maybe you will see them in the next quilt festival.

  204. I just posted my link. This is the first time I've shared anything crafty on my blog! Its fun to see what everyone else is doing.

  205. Thank you so much for hosting the Blogger's Quilt Fest! I love reading blogs almost as much as quilting :). I look forward to discovering many more wonderful blogs.

  206. I've enjoyed quilting and especially this quilt because it was a surprise for my sister…and she was REALLY surprised!! I loved it! I have three quilt-alongs in progress at the moment: Jelly Roll Sampler, Pinwheel Sampler, and the Simple Squares Sampler. I finished the Road to Spring quilt-along earlier this spring. Thanks, Amy, for hosting!

  207. Hi Amy, thanks for putting the festival on again, it's so fun going on the tour around blogland :)
    I am currently working on 4 quilts which is very unlike me, I'm usually a 'finish one before I move on' kind of a gal! lol! But a change is as good as a rest I guess ;)
    Have a great weekend!

  208. Thanks Amy,It's Great to see that quilting will never be a dying art with all of these amazing Quilters out there!

  209. I enjoy the quilt fest so much! Thanks for being such a wonderful host. :)….humm.. I am a little embarrassed to say that I have more quilts unfinished then I do finished. That might be a goal for the second part of the year. :) This is good motivation!

  210. Amy you are the GREATEST!! Thanks again for bringing so much talent together under one computer screen!! I can't wait to see all the great talent!

  211. How exciting! Discovered your blog today and had to be part of the quilt festival. I'm so looking forward to clicking on each entry to get new ideas. Thanks for hosting this.

  212. WhoooHoooooo Amy!! Love, love, love the Fest….thanks so much for all your hard work and all that I have learned from you!

    Hmmmmm….too many WIPs….and I think since last May when I found the ORBC I have sewn over thirty quilts and at least that many table runners and toppers!

    My mind is full and my fingers are itching to get the ideas out!;)

  213. Love this all inclusive festival! Looking at all the quilts in the last festival inspired me to start a blog this year. Quilts finished & WIPs are about the same – approx. 20.

  214. It is hard to say how many quilts I have sewn, because I've done very simple ones–possibly over a hundred of them–and given them away to charity. I'm looking in my flickr set, and I see about 27; I've given away 18 of those, and I just finished one, and one's not counted, so there are maybe 11 in the house. (Wow, that many? They're in many different places…)

    I actually recently wrote a "I'd love to make this quilt" list, and I think there are {gulp} at least a dozen on there!

    Thanks for doing this, Amy. It pushes me to keep moving forward in my quilting, and to create with an eye for display (so that means stepping up my level of craftsmanship!).

    (By the way, you don't have to enter me in the drawings; I've won a couple of things recently, and I'd like to "share the love…")

  215. I'm so excited to start trolling through all the links! Thank you thank you thank you for doing all the legwork to get this up and running!! It really is one of the coolest aggregations of craftiness out there in blogland! (not that I'm biased towards quilting or anything) :)

  216. Amy – thanks so much for hosting was is already another successful quilt festival for bloggers! Look at all that eye candy up there! It's AMAZING! Thank you for pulling it all together. I forgot to post my comment last night when I linked in – I was number 56 and already there's well over 300! Thanks again! xx

  217. Wow thanks for hosting this! I'm such a beginner and probably not even qualified to participate but what the heck. I'm off to look at all the other participants. It'll take me days!

  218. I have a long to-do list for quilts! I have two in progress right now, but I'm eager to hop over to a new one, so that will soon be three!

  219. I just posted my entry… I'm super excited about this one… I'm new to quilting, the list is really going to provide me with a lot of inspiration…
    Thanks for the chance…
    Spread the Cheer!!!

  220. Thanks for the opportunity to share my quilt. It usually lives behind the front door where no one gets to see much of it. Now it's OUT THERE. lol

  221. hi Amy, i "met" you when i started my very first quilt, last year at Danas Old Red Barn Co quiltalong :-) – that was a lot of fun, wasn´t it?? thanks for hosting this great festival!!

  222. Amy, this is such a great idea of yours. Thanks for doing it for us. It's so great to get inspired by others' wonderful work. I've made about 50 quilts since I started quilting in 2001. I have more than 30 fabric collections ready to be made into quilts, but I haven't finalized the patterns I will use for many of them. That's my hangup. I modify all my quilt patterns. They sort of evolve as I make them most of the time. I love the creative process that produces a quilt, but my favorite part is putting the fabrics together.

  223. I just had a surgery and hence I am not able to sew ——- but what a joy to find a link to your festival. It is just perfect for me right now. I have joined immidiately :O)
    Thank you for this wonderful initative.
    All my best regard

  224. Thank you for the Quilt Festival. It is one of the Best Quilt Show I see..!! I have been quilting for many years. Have made hundreds of quilts, and treat each one like my first..!! Can't wait to see the other blog's.

  225. WOW, this is fun, I am a vintage fabric kinda girl so most of my quits are older quilts that are family quilts that I have "Saved" and proudly show off to anyone who will look at them. I do quilt and I have probably made about 10-20 quilts, started when our Girls were little, went thru quite a few on their beds, LOL. Now I am on a vintage linens kick so working on quilts made of recycled sheets and pillowcases, being green and making beautiful quilts at the same time. So go check out my blog, I am putting up one of my favorie quilts, so enjoy looking. THANKS FOR HOSTING THIS. I am going to try to hook up with your button, but am not all that savy so hopefully it works.

  226. I've made 4 bed quilts, over 20 quilts for Lutheran World Relief which work up fast and are much needed around the world, several wall quilts and baby quilts over the years. Thanks for all the work that went into putting this together. It is wonderful to see everyone's work!

  227. Hi Amy, Thank you once again for hosting such a fabulous event. So wonderful to be inspired and awed so much while simply sitting at my computer! Oh, and have an AWESOME Birthday xo

  228. Hi Amy, thank you so much for organising the Quilt Festival and giving me the chance to show one of my quilts. I am now looking forward to looking at everyone else's blogs and quilts – what fun!

  229. Thank you Amy for organizing such an amazing Quilt Festival!! I can't wait to visit all the other blogs and see the wonderful quilts these talented ladies are sharing!!

  230. Thank you so much for organizing this festival. I really love this idea. The spring festival last year, was kind of a motivation for me to start my own blog. I also had just started quilting, so it feels like a significant milestone for me. I didn't finish a quilt specifically for the festival this time, but I had this past fall. I have something like 6 quilts in the queue. I hope to have at least 3 to choose from for the fall. Thanks again, this is a lot of fun.

  231. I can't imagine gathering that many people and that many quilts in one room! What a wonderful list of tallented quilters! Kudos to your for putting this all together.

  232. 375 from Mr. Linky, just the number I never knew I always wanted! What a hit, kudos to everyone showing off all these beautiful quilts! And of course to Amy our kind Hostess. Good thing she doesn't have to feed everyone.

  233. I can't wait to check out all the quilts! I currently have three quilts in progress. They are waiting for me to finish some dresses for my girls for a wedding we are going to in June. I know that I made about 16 quilts last year, I have no idea of a lifetime number, but now that you mention it, I want to start keeping track.

  234. I just added my first quilt design. I believe this is my first time participating in your quilt festival. Thank you

  235. I just posted my link…this is the first time I've joined, so I'm psyched! Have sewed forever, but never was interested in quilting until a little over a year ago…now, I think of nothing else except what I'm working on, what I want to work on, what I should be working on…well, you get the idea. ADDICTED!!! Okay, I'm off to go visit some blogs! Thank you for doing this, Amy…it is great fun!

  236. I love this idea – missed it last year but I'm having a great time getting inspired by everyone else!


  237. This is my first year entering, so thanks for doing this! I entered my "quilt of insanity" hexagon quilt.
    I've made a dozen or so quilts, some rag quilts, some more involved, but it's always something that I enjoy. I have two quilts in the works. One I am hand quilting right now, and another I just got the fabric for and I'm excited to get going on it.

  238. Fantastic idea. Thank you for hosting. I'm off to grab a cup of tea and look through all the quilts.

  239. WOW,, there are LOTS of comments! Thanks for doing this Amy – it was fun writing about my quilt – I have a new cuppa tea, I'm ready to go look at others!
    Beth in Dallas

  240. Yay! Thanks so much for the fun-fest! :)
    i have made 4 quilts; i just started last fall, picking up that age old family tradition :)i love it, and most of all, i LOVE fabric! i just finished #4 last week, and i am finishing up a place mat set.

    i can't wait to look thru everyone entries!!

  241. So glad I found out about your festival! Its been lots of fun hopping from blog to blog looking at all the wonderful quilts and blogs peoples have. I'm finding so many different inspirations and have added quite a bit to my want to do list!

  242. I am 'in' for the first time, Amy. I am having so much fun looking at the diversity there is in quilting. What a great quilt show! I hope you continue to take on this monumental event. Thanks so much!

  243. Hi Amy! Thanks for hosting this great event. WIPS… I always have several quilts going, a couple of piles of fabric ready with a plan in mind, and a whole lot of other ideas swimming around in my brain.

  244. Thank you for this great festival!
    I want to be a part of it and hope I made everything right!

    And now I start my tour through all the other blogs to take a look at wonderful quilts!

    In my blog you can take a look at my first quilt!

    Viele Grüße

  245. Ooops! I almost forgot to leave a comment here! Here's something about me and my quilting: I'm very good at starting and finishing quilt tops, which then sit in a nice, neatly folded pile. I'm too afraid to go count them, but 8 is a good guess right now! Thanks for hosting the Festival and thanks to the sponsors!

  246. This is the first time I've ever entered an online quilt festival! HOW FUN!!! The quilt I entered was the 3rd one I've ever made and I just finished a fourth with 3 more in the works. I love getting ideas from other quilters. Thank you again for doing such a fun online festival!!!!

  247. Hello Amy!
    You've done it again! Thank you and thanks to your sponsors for giving me a venue to display my quilts! This will spur me on to finish some of my ufo for future quilt festivals…lol! For now, I've blogged about it and posted your blogger festival button!
    Oh soooo many blogs to hop; so many quilts to see! WOW!

    hugz, Pam

  248. Amy,
    Thank you so much for hosting this again. Also, thanks for your quick response to my Mr. linky difficulties!

  249. Amy,
    Thank you so much for hosting this again. Also, thanks for your quick response to my Mr. linky difficulties!

  250. Thank you for hosting the festival again! I have just added my link and I'm looking forward to lookiing throuh the entries during the weekend. I've been quilting for more than fifteen years, but still keep finding inspiration for new quilts everywhere – my ever expanding "to do"-list counts 27 quilts!

  251. Thanks again Amy for the opportunity to participate in this fun festival – always a blast! – Marlene

  252. I posted about one of my favorite quilts and now plan on parking my self in front on my mac and watching this wonderful quilt show. Thanks for hosting this. sorry i missed the last one. i've now added you to my blog list.

  253. Oh my goodness — what fun we will have. Thanks again for organizing such a great event. I've found so many interesting blogs this way.

  254. I'm having so much fun looking at all the quilts! I've even been making a list of the ones that I want to go back and look at more closely!

  255. This is my first! I have now made my way through half of the entries and taking my time reading each and everyone's post. My entry has finally been posted as it was very hard deciding which one!

  256. What a fun idea! I am only making my 3rd quilt right now and the one I posted for the festival is my first. Can't wait to check out the Flickr group!

  257. This is my first time to enter, so thanks for hosting this Festival. Isn't it great to see all those wonderful quilts?

  258. What fun to see all the different quilts. Thanks for hosting this quilt festival that we can enjoy from our own homes.

  259. Thanks for offering this WONDERFUL Festival! I do appreciate all your hard work. You asked for some information about me … how about "I ordered my new sewing machine today?" I'm getting a Janome Horizon – that machine just hit the shops, and it seems to be perfect ;-))

  260. Hi Amy! Thanks for doing this, it's so much fun. Although I have quite a few quilts I plan to make right now, I'm working on two baby quilts, for two old friends who just had babies about the same time I had my baby this year. It is so much fun to commemorate such a special event with a quilt. Thanks again!

  261. I love your quilt festivals!
    I am becoming a more active quilter, and I have a website in development that will be devoted to quilting … hoping to have it up soon. For now, I'm sharing my personal blog (which has turned into more of a crafty-quilt blog, when I remember to update it).
    I have finished 5 quilts since the new year, and have one in progress. I find so much inspiration in the quilt-blog community and I can't wait to browse through all of the entries.

  262. Amy thank you so much for hosting quilt festival and for thinking of it in the first place. it is so inspiring and so much fun to see what other people are making. i know you put in a lot of hard work to make this happen, so thank you. i finally got my post up for others to enjoy….

  263. Hi, Amy! This is my first festival – I'm so excited to play with the big kids! Thanks so much for hosting.

  264. Amy, thanks so much for providing hundreds of links to incredible quilty eye candy! This is such an awesome collection of links.

    I'm proud to add my blog and quilt to the list.

  265. Thanks for hosting this party Amy! I've enjoyed browsing the first two festivals and decided to join in this time.

  266. THis is my second festival and like the last one I continue to marvel at the beauty and creativity of quilters. LOL – how many UFOs? Too many to lose quilting time counting!

  267. Amy – Thank you for hosting this quilt festival. This is my 1st entry. I have 4 quilts in progress right now. I have gotten so much inspiration from your blog and other great quilt blogs out there. Thank you.

  268. Hi Amy! I came across it from a friend and am so excited to get in on it. I'm so looking forward to all of the inspiration I'm sure to find perusing the festival blogs! I still consider myself new to quilting, but I do have three quilts in the works and a bazillion more in my "to do" file! Thanks for hosting this fabulous festival1

  269. Hi Amy
    I have enjoyed joining in the fun :-) and posting my Story of the Back that just so wanted to be the front :-) Am going to have lots of fun working my way through all the other blogs too :-)
    Thankyou for allowing me to be part of the fun

  270. oh my gosh, this is such a success. I can't wait to visit even more of these blogs.

    I have no idea how many quilts I've made. I do try to document each one, but am finding that I've not been doing all that well. The one chosen for this Festival somehow missed so I will be doing up documentation for it tomorrow. Glad you helped me to catch that lapse.

    Thanks Amy for organizing this fun.

  271. I am excited to be able to share with you my favourite quilt. I have made quite a few … well over 200 and this one I am submitting always makes it to the top of my favourite's list. Thank you for hosting. I have really enjoyed connecting to the others blogs and admire the great work which is being done in the quilting world!

  272. This is my second time entering a quilt into your online quilt show. The quilt I am showing is going to be show at the International Plowing Match Quilt Competition next weekend in Shedden, Ontario, Canada. Thanks for hosting the online show again. Always lots of great quilts to look at and blogs to read!

  273. thank you once again for hosting the festival and I can see I will be very busy in the weeks to come looking through all the blogs and admiring quilts.
    I have made more quilts than I can remember and started about 30 years ago.

  274. I thought maybe I was too late to get in, but happily I am now part of the BQF! Thanks, Amy for hosting this fun event.

  275. Well i think i did it right! Hope the links work right! They are all a rool of the dice with me! Thanks for organizing this!

  276. Amy Im very confused! i did it all it showed up my links worked butnow its saying something aboutbeing closed and my links not there? hum?

  277. Thanks for organizing this Amy. I have posted the link on my blog. It is just so much fun… Now I am off to see what everyone has made.

  278. This is wonderful! I am not sure how many quilts I have made, it is not a ton but I love the process of planning and making a quilt. Thanks for hosting this, what an inspiration!

  279. What a great idea! Love it!!! Just posted my link to. I'm looking through the quilts on flickr now and WOW what a great showing. Great JOB TO EVERYONE!!!!

  280. What a great idea you had, and perfectly implemented! Thanks so much, got me realizing I had a quilt I'd never shown on my blog before!

  281. I was reminded n=by Miri at Milk and Honey Quilts that it was festival time again. Thanks for continuing this tradition!

  282. I think there's been an error with my previous two comments, probably because I primarily use Firefox for my main blog and was logged in on Internet Exploder for my quilting blog. So this one links to my main blog, but there's a link in the sidebar to my quilting blog, plus I'm #401 on the list.

    This festival is a fantastic idea and I'm so pleased to be joining in! I've been quilting for three years now and sew everything by hand, although I do plan to learn how to use a sewing machine sooner or later.

  283. How could you do this to me? Over 420 quilts to look at – how on earth am I going to find time for housework or cooking this week? Thanks for doing this for us, I took part in the last one and met some great people.

  284. I added a quilt to "Blogging For Quilters and Other Interesting People." Thanks for the opportunity! So many gorgeous quilts on here this time.

  285. thanks for this. would be nice to see more quilters and their work.
    much greetings from österreich

  286. Dear Amy, thanks for organizing and hosting such a wonderful virtual festival! I'm new to it, first time I've heard of it and first time I'm participating. I've finished 14 UFO's earlier this year, and currently I'm working on log cabin blocks for 2 lap quilts. I hope I've done it right, the links and all that, I mean… :)

  287. This is an amazing response! So many lovely blogs to visit and such great community. Thanks. A few years ago, I took pictures of all my unfinished projects. They totaled 45. I have finished a number of them and added a few. I think I am at 35 now so making some headway.

  288. Amy, thank you for organizing this. It is so inspiring to see what others are doing. I'm #450. I know there will be others who join after I do.

  289. When I got on yesterday to link my post the linky wasn't there and I was so bugged that I had missed out! There was even a message that said the entering was closed. Okay, maybe I somehow got onto a previous years? Then it said you weren't accepting any comments – I really think my computer was messing with me because all is fine this morning!
    Thank you for all your hard work in hosting this festival.
    Can't wait to sit back in my recliner and see everyone's quilts.

  290. Thanks for hosting this! I have a couple quilts in mind to make for my mom [she hand quilts the tops that I piece] … but grad school has gotten in the way of my plans! Hoping to change that soon.

  291. Wow, this is so great! Thank you and to all those that entered! It is great fun to peruse the entries and see all the creativity and inspiration that is out in the world.


  292. Thanks again. I'm sure I won't be able to get through all the links – there are so many and they all have other links and … I get lost in the threads. Lost in a good way!

  293. Thanks for hosting the quilt fest. I just want to say I learn so much from you site, thanks for sharing your quilting secrets. (I like to press my seams open too) :)

  294. Thank you Amy for providing this wonderful show of quilts. I so enjoy getting around to see as many as possible. I first found out about the first festival and was only an observer. By the second one I had made my own blog and was able to participate for the first time. SO this spring I made my second entry. Many thanks for your dedication to this project.

  295. Thank you very much Amy!
    This festival is wonderfull! It's awesome to see all the other quilts and read the stories.

  296. Amy, thanks for hosting another Bloggers' Quilt Festival! It's always so much fun, and this time around I even have a finished quilt I can enter. Actually, it's my only finished quilt so far, but I have two more in the works at the moment.

    Best wishes from Germany,

  297. Thanks for organizing this – and keeping it going for three "seasons". I've been quilting for about five or six years, and I've found that quilting can serve as a form of therapy. It's certainly done more for my mental health than just about anything else I've tried! That's actually how I chose my entry – the quilt that got me back on the path to happiness.

  298. Hello Amy!

    This is completely awesome, what you have here. Holding an online quilting festival is too cool!

    This is only my second quilt, and I'm super proud of it. I already have three more quilts I'm working on (one pattern does three quilts at a time), and have ideas for at least 4 more in my head. I can't help but get excited! Holding back from starting them all is a hard task!

  299. Blessings to you for all the time you devote to hosting the Quilt Festivals. I just love them and am honored to be a part of a fast growing festival.

    Browsing through all the quilters' links gives me such incentive and inspiration. There is so much amazing talent in this world.

    Blessings to all those who participate in this fun event.

  300. Hi Amy, Thanks for organizing and hosting this fun event. Going through the blogs keeps me entertained for hours! What wonderful talent and creativity you've brought together!

  301. Hi Amy. Thank you for another fun festival. This is my 2nd one! I love the idea of a quilt show I can go to in my jammies!

  302. Hi Amy,
    I did 2 things wrong. First I posted my comment before I made my post. Second I posted the link to my blog instead of the blog post for the festival. Sorry for the inconvenience, and hopefully one day I will get this blogging, and computer thing learned. I am a self taught quilter for about 3-4 years now, and have been blogging since Sept. of 2009.
    Thank You for hosting this.
    I love your blog.

  303. Oh my Amy thank you so much this will be fun again. Thanks for all your work. Hope I did all that I had to. Hugs Bunny

  304. Hi Amy, I just discovered your Festival and am having loads of fun browsing all the entries! I posted my entry today. Thanks for hosting this, it's terrific.

  305. What a wonderful idea and I'm looking forward to checking out all the great quilts and links! I couldn't figure out how to use the httml code, but did link your site to my post. I didn't have time to make something new for this, but am showing an older quilt I made that had a story and was fun to do. Thanks for hosting this.

  306. I seem to give all my quilts away – I have MS – so it take me a while to to make them – cutting is a big challenge from a wheelchair – I do qults for kids and it seems like every time I get any other quilt made there is someone in the community that is in need of comfort, so I make arrangements to have it delivered – quilt making is my ministry

  307. This is amazing! What a great response this season :)

    Let's see…this quilt was my 4th or 5th completed, and I currently have 7 (7?!) quilts in process. I have recently joined an online quilting bee, which has proven to be both a great creative outlet and a source for new ideas and techniques. The quilting blog community never ceases to amaze me :)

  308. Amy, thanks for organizing this and encouraging me to become a quilt blogger! This is so much fun seeing all the beautiful quilts and reading the stories behind them.

  309. Amy! Thanks so much for hosting this Festival!! This is wonderful fun and it's so great to see what everyone else is doing…

  310. Thanks so much, Amy, for hosting this festival. This is the first time I've run across it but you can be sure I'll enter the one in the fall ad well. Great job!

  311. I came across this quite by accident and have really been enjoying looking at the quilts. Thank you so much for hosting it…I was not even going to enter till a friend pointed out that it is open till May 28th. I hope you have half as much fun as I am having.

  312. I love reading all the great posts in the new Blogger's Quilt Festival! Thanks so much for organizing this again. It's awesome!

    I just added my entry in Mr. Linky.

    I don't know how many quilts I've made…maybe 20. I started quilting when my kiddos were little…I wanted to be the grandmother who quilted. I now have 5 grandbabies and one on the way. I just finished the quilt top today for the baby boy due in August.

  313. Hi Amy,

    Can't believe I stumbled upon your quilt festival. What a great idea! My entry is very understated. I do hope people enjoy it. Not the traditional quilt but still a quilt that took a lot of time. Thought I would go for something different to the usual colourful cotton quilts.

  314. Thanks so much for hosting this, Amy! It's been an incredible experience – I'm a BQF rookie and this won't be my last, that's for sure!

    I am not sure how many quilts I've made. Maybe 30? The number of projects on my to-do list? Well, now that is definitely more than 30 if you count my "one day"'s…

  315. I finished my 1st quilt a year ago this month! And have completed 42 lap quilts since then — amazing what you can accomplish in a year! I made the quilt I entered back in January and it was my first "i designed it" quilt!

    Thanks SO MUCH for this … can't wait to spend some time this week checking out everyone elses quilts!

  316. Amy,
    Thanks so much for organizing the Quilt Festival. I featured one of my older quilts this time, but I'll definitely be thinking ahead now to which quilt I want to put in the next festival!

  317. Thanks a lot for hosting this Quilt Festival! I love to visit the blogs and see so many beautiful quilts.
    I have just posted my entry. I don't know how many quilts I have made, but I started quilting about 15 years ago. I enjoy "playing" with bits and pieces. As many others I have too much in my stash, but I like to make useful things out of scraps. I enjoy every minute I can find for handicrafts – it gives me a lot.
    I have you on my blog list. Your blog is great!

  318. Thanks for hosting this display of bloggers' quilts! I'm sure enjoying checking out all the quilts. The one I posted for the event is one of my favorites simply for its coloring. I heart purple! Hope you all like it.

  319. Amy, it looks like another great festival. Thank-you so much for hosting. It is lovely to see how much it has grown in such a short time.

  320. Hi Amy! Great show again! I've been making quilts for over 25 years, and I don't have a clue how many I've made. I give most of them away, and I tell every person I give one to that quilts are really hugs from me! Thanks for doing this. It's a lot of fun!

  321. I currently have 3 quilt sandwiches I need to finish quilting.. Great giveaways! Going to work on a post now:)

  322. Thanks for hosting this festival. I enjoyed the last one, checking every day for new posts. It's really neat to see what everyone else is making and the new trends in quilt designs.

  323. This is so fun to participate in! A couple of interesting things about me, one that may set me apart from the 'main stream quilters' and another that shows how ________ (insert word here- i.e., crazy, nuts, impatient, etc) I am.

    First, I am a man… A few male quilters out there, but not many in comparison. And second, I wanted to join a virtual quilting bee, couldn't find one so I ended up starting 3 and then joining 2 more all in the same month. Crazy is probably the word you would choose, right? :)

  324. I'm a little late to the party…..
    thanks so much for hosting this! I would've finished my quilt sooner, if I hadn't been glued to my computer these past few days ;-)

  325. What a great Festival!! I think that I've made somewhere around 150 quilts now in my "Quilting Career" LOL – but several of them I'd never show in a photo! LOL

  326. Hi, Amy! Thanks for doing another festival. It's always so much fun to flip through everyone's links. :)

    I've made probably somewhere around 2 dozen quilts. Most of them are baby quilts and I only have 1 of my own quilts in my possession.

    The quilt I entered (the Bastille Baby Quilt) is a quilt I made a few months ago for my soon-to-arrive nephew. I'm currently working on a quilt-along using the pattern I made for the quilt.

    The quilt I've had in my WIP pile the longest has been there for 6 years. It's for my friend, Michael. For whatever reason, I just can't bring myself to finish it. The top has been finished on it for about the whole 6 years. I just can't finish it for some reason.

    Thanks again for the festival!

  327. Hi Amy, I just posted my link. I'm a new blogger and this is my first Blogger's Quilt Festival! I can't wait to go check out all the beautiful quilts in the festival! Thanks so much for hosting this.

  328. Thanks for hosting this again! I'm 39 and have been quilting seriously since I was 18. Before that it was just occasionally helping my mom cut patches for the quilts she hand-pieced. Last year I made a dozen baby quilts and around half a dozen bed quilts. All the baby quilts have been delivered, and half the bed quilts donated to local agencies. Sometimes I think I need more beds!

  329. Thanks so much for hosting this quilt festival. I've spent hours enjoying the different posts and it has provided me with much inspiration.

  330. This is my second time joining in and I am very happy to be a part of Blogger's Quilt Festival Spring 2010. Thank you for hosting this event!

  331. I'm in inspiration over load!
    I'm half though all the links. Thanks so much for doing this.

    I have added so many ideas to my list!

  332. Hi Amy – no need to enter me in the giveaways (too much fabric here, seriously!), just wanted to say hi and thank you for hosting yet another GREAT QUILT FESTIVAL!! THANKS!!

  333. Finally got my post written for the festival, after and unplanned two-week blog hiatus!

    Thanks so much for doing this, Amy!

    ps: I used your hand-stitched binding tutorial to put the finishing touch on my quilt!

  334. ok hope my link came through right. just found out about this & luckily i was just finishing up a quilt, so entered on a whim! fun!

  335. Well, this will keep me busy for a few days, won't it? What a fabulous amount of entries – you should be very proud, missus!

    Strangely, I've been quilting one year almost to the day!! And I've just counted and I'm working on quilts number 19 and 20!! Okay, so one of those is a doll quilt and two were for prams but still. Not bad I reckon!! Plus number 20? Is my first double bed sized. How I'm going to quilt it I have no clue!!

  336. This is my first time participating and thanks so much for hosting this festival! I've been quilting for over 10 years and have made at over 200 quilting projects, many of them baby and lap quilts for charity. It's so great to see what other quilters have made, so inspiring!

  337. I am the type of person that causes you great frustration. I added a dead link and couldn't remove it so I added the correct link and am going to ask for your help. Thanks so much.

  338. I am Christine of Covered By Design. This is my first full size quilt and is a photo memory quilt for a boy who lost his brother to Diffuse Pontine Glioma,a brain stem tumor, in January. Their parents are good friends of ours and the loss was devastating to all.

  339. Dear Amy, thankyou so much for all the work that you have put into this year's quilt festival and for the fun and inspirtion it provides us all.
    I have linked up.

  340. Hi Amy! I am new to quilting- I have made just 3 baby quilts, and only in the past month, and have been drinking in all the info and stalking amazing blogs like yours to soak up all the tips I can! I absolutely love quilting. My contribution is my very first quilt, and it is set to be donated to the NICU at our local Children's Hospital. Thanks for the Festival, it is so fu to see everyone's creations!

  341. Hello Amy,
    Thank you for your work for hosting this event.
    I have been a seamstress for many many years. But I just recently started making quilt. so I don't have so many quilts finished. But I have so many quilts I want to make in the future. I believe that makes my life happier pretty much.

  342. I should be finishing my book (the one I'm writing, instead I am getting my act in gear about the quilt festival. I have been in writing mode and not noticed it creep up. I will post the entry in my blog later on today with pics.

  343. This is so much fun! This is my first time at participating — I'm really enjoying seeing what others have done! Lots of ideas; lots of talent.

  344. Thanks for the chance to talk about my daughter's wedding quilt. This is fun and these blogs are soooo inspiring.

  345. Hi Amy! I am so excited to be a part of Quilt Festival this year. We "met" last year when you led the zig zag quilt along. What fun that was!! I have finished a few since then, mostly for other people. My festival entry is brand spanking new and I made it just because. : ) It is a family quilt, although my daughter says its for her. She's two, I will humor her.

  346. Thanks for hosting this, I've only been quilting for a year and been very inspired by the entries in the last two festivals. This is my first time joining in!

  347. Sorry, for the false start – but here we are.
    Thank you so much Amy for another fun festival of wonderful quilts.

  348. I've just linked in. I have already visited some blogs – it's great to see all the projects.
    viridian at

  349. This is my first time visiting or participating! Love it! I think I linked to you! I hope anyway!! The quilt it my second one ever! Loving all things sewn!

  350. Hello Amy!

    Thanks for hosting the Festival yet again! I thought I wasn't going to make it this time but have managed to creep in at the last minute!! Luv……..Ann J

  351. This Quilt Festival is always such a fun time! My list is too long with the number of projects I would love to finish this year! I am hopeful! Thanks! Meg

  352. Love Bloggers Quilt Festival! Love not wearing white gloves and eating cupcakes with a frothy coffee whilst I browse these amazing quilts! Thanks Amy, count me in for the giveaways!

  353. Hi Amy!
    thanks for doing this quilt festival for bloggers! such a great way to find new blogs and see lots of awesome quilts!

  354. Thank you for hosting this wonderful event! I shared a special quilt I made and I am really glad that this festival inspired me to write about the personal story behind the quilt. Please enter me in your lovely give aways:)

  355. I'm leaving a comment for Denice's Day. She was having a problem linking up, so I helped her. Hope it worked. Isn't this a fun festival!

  356. Congratulations on another successful Festival Amy! How many quilts? Over one hundred if I'm counting, but don't ask me to show them all! LOL Still have way too many on the 'to do' list, my head is brimming! And with more than 20 tops waiting to be quilted, and another 20 on the go, I guess I have a few more to go yet! All the more to choose from for the next Festival!

  357. Hi Amy, thanks so much for hosting this; it's so cool looking at everyone's quilts and reading their stories. I have just put a quilt up and linked to this site so I hope I got it all right!! Fingers crossed!

  358. I am having a great time looking at all the quilts in the festival. You are so awesome to put this together. I finished a quilt in time for the festival. It is a charity quilt, the first of many. I plan to make and donate 40 quilts by my 40th birthday. Wish me luck!

  359. I'm a new quilter–I have one mini quilt finished, have two in progress, and have many more in my head. I'm a little overwhelmed by all the entries, but am inspired by what I've seen! :)

  360. Thanks so much for the opportunity to be included with all these inspiring quilting talents. It's fun to look at all the amazing quilts out there. Thanks for bringing us together, Amy!

    I currently have 3 quilts in various stages of completion and more ideas only on paper. I know my quilting to-do list will only get longer as I enjoy seeing what others have made!

  361. I was so excited to finish up a custom quilt in time to put it in the BQF!

    I don't have too many finishes under my belt (10 or so?) – would love to quit the "day job" so I could do more!

  362. I am excited to finally be a part of this festival. Thanks for everything. It was so much fun to share my Moda Challenge quilt and remember all the fun my friend and I had as we worked on them.

  363. Hey Amy!
    Thanks for all of your hard work putting this together. It's one of my favorite events in blogland! When I first started my blog the end of last summer one of the first things in blog land I did was join in on the fun at your Fall BQF. I love discovering new blogs to read!


  364. You're such a sweetie for hosting, Amy. I love the festival. It's an event that just keeps giving. I love reading all the blogs and seeing everyone's beautiful quilts. Thanks so much!

  365. Amy, What a great idea! I love the idea of spending the day at a virtual quilt show and never leaving the house! Sandy

  366. Thanks so much for hosting this great festival. Seeing everyone's quilts rounded up in one post is so great, and has already provided so much inspiration (and I've only viewed a tiny fraction of all the wonderful entries!).

  367. I love the idea of this quilt festival and am glad to be able to join in. I'm a busy mom with 6 kids who quilts in her spare time for sanity. I've been quilting for about 10 years, since I had my first child and I love it. Thanks again.

  368. Never enough time or energy to make all the quilts in my brain. Thank you so much, Amy … you provided me with tons of inspiration and eye candy. I guess I must get to that unfinished pile 'o quilts; Wait until you see my Hippo!

    Hugs, Tina in San Diego

  369. whew, I made it! the quilt and the post before the festival is over. Great Turnout and I hope it's not the last. Off now to browse a few quilts.

  370. Almost forgot to do this part;-) I am working on my 2nd quilt and my brain is thinking of nothing but that, lol. This is such a wonderful experience and its a blast to see everyone's quilts. coveredbydesign at

  371. Amy,

    This is the second time I've entered the quilt festival and it's so fun to browse what all these creative folks are doing. I'm quite inspired. Thank you for doing this!


  372. How wonderful that so many people put up prizes for the fastival. I can't even begin to count how many projects I have going right now. Some of the things I have currently in process are: 15 table runners due by 7/10, a book bag for a little girl's b-day and 2 giant You Go Girl bags by Tammy Tadd that I'm working as well.

  373. I just love this Blogger's Quilt Festival. I'm new this year, so I posted an older quilt. Next year I will make one just to show off for the festival. Hmm…now what to do?

  374. I'm a little late joining in on the fun, but I keep reading about everyone's quilts and really wanted to show my latest finish. I have a tendency to start quilts more than finish them, but I'm trying to follow through a little better. Thanks for hosting this fun event!

  375. Hi Amy,

    What fun this is!!! I'm a little late, but not too, I hope! I loved sharing my quilt and story on my blog. I've been quilting for years, and have made dozens of quilts, with dozens more in the works. Seems there is always a new quilt to make, doesn't it?! And I am inspired by so many quiltie peeps out there. I love to get my quiltie mojo going by spending time blog-hopping or on flickr. Yummy yum yum Thanks so much for hosting this! xotammy

  376. I can't believe I almost missed your wonderful festival. I'm #578 but I got there in time! Thanks again for doing this, I'll pay closer attention in the Fall.

  377. While I got a late start on this festival, I am so happy to be involved with it. So happy that you take the time to get this together for us. What a wonderful way to keep in touch with like minds! Thanks so much Amy.

  378. what a marvelous idea to have this festival–i'm so inspired!! i have made about 15 quilts–mostly what i call comfy quilts–pieced fronts with fleece backs. also have made several foundation pieced wall hangings, along with other wall hangings. the victory garden quilt is my first quilt quilt. am working on a pickle dish quilt–kaffe fassett's design, a flip a coin quilt, two more comfy quilts for grandsons, another kaffe fassett quilt and several baby quilts i want to give to hospital. always in the midst of several projects of one sort or other

  379. This is AWESOME!!!! Just discoved this festival and by the same time your blog!
    Fabulous & inspiring ideas!
    I'm a beginner in quilting, made 5 so far but many more to come!

  380. Another great festival! Thanks Amy :) Look forward to the next one – I'm really glad you're vision has taken off…


  381. Hi! I am a really new blogger, and I struggled with linking up. I could not figure out how to put the cute button on my blog, but I did put your blog address as a link. I hope that works! I have enjoyed visiting all the blogs, found a few inspirations! Thanks!

  382. This is too much fun. I have no idea if I'll get to even a decent portion of the other blogs, but I'm going to give it a shot. Thank you for organizing this. And thank you for the chance to win such fantastic prizes – as if finding new blogs to watch isn't enough!

  383. Hi! Thanks for hosting this again! I'm a very new quilter and finally felt confident enough this year to enter a quilt. I can't wait to see what everyone else has entered.

  384. I just posted about a quilt I finished last fall. Thanks for helping me jumpstart my new (and dead:)) quilting blog!

  385. Thanks for hosting this! I've completed about 20 quilts by now? I was hoping to finish a new one for this festival but ran out of the right color thread and time. I have four more quilts started and another two that need to be started!

  386. I think this is a wonderful event, especially for someone like me who has only been sewing for a little over a year! With all these creative people the ideas and inspiration are endless!!! Thanks so much for hosting this!!!


  387. I'm a little out of my league but wanted to participate in this awesome festival. So many wonderful quilts to look at.

  388. Thanks for hosting. I love seeing so many quilts. It's such an inspiration to see so many great quilters out there.

  389. Oh boy there has been such a great response to this festival – I'll need to set aside a whole day to surf through everyone's entry – thanks for doing such a great job Amy and looking forward to the next one.

  390. What a great idea!! This is my first time entering and I look forward to more. I have been quilting for 15 years, have made over 100 quilts and have quilted over 200 for my clients. Thanks for organizing this Amy. From a Northern Canadian quilter.

  391. Yay! I'm so excited to be a part of this. Thank you very much for hosting this, Amy. You're doing a great job!

    olive and ollie

  392. Well, I finally did it! Thank you, Amy, for putting this together…what a wonderful way to show and tell with so many others!

    I have been quilting a while, but mainly for pleasure and a way to escape. Sometimes, I can turn a little revenue over. My problem is that I allow myself to get distracted by my stash wall, & then have a hard time seeing all my quilts through to their logical (useful) conclusions! There must be a dozen uncompleted quilts in my closet (in various stages – tops only, sandwiches with some quilting, sandwiches w/o quilting…). But, it is always fun to plan a new quilt, right?

    2010 found me promising myself to finish off my stack of begun projects, and limit myself in the creating dept until I get all else under control. Ha, good luck to me!

    Thanks again for the opportunity and the fun site!

  393. Oh my goodness! Over 600 quilts to look at for inspiration! I am SOO excited. I have already seen a couple of beautiful quilts that have the wheels in my head turning! Thanks for a great opportunity to share and inspire!

  394. My entry was my 50th quilt that I made. My first quilt was for a baby and my 50th for a young lad. So far, I've made 78 quilts with the last one made for a child as well. Quilts and children go so well together.

    It is amazing the number of bloggers who have participated this year. Bravo to you for organizing this event!!!

  395. My favorite quilt is ALWAYS the one that I'm working on. And since they almost all get donated to charity…I've learned to love them and leave them in a hurry. But I always know that my love, my heart and the work of my hands, goes with each and every quilt…so no wonder each one is my favorite!!!! I've included my links in my latest post with a photo of my latest quilt…a combination of styles and liberated free-pieced back which I named What Kind of Quilter Are You? as in goes along with a fun description of all of the parts of ourselves as quilters that make up who we are! And you dear, Amy, seem to pull all of us together, several times a year in a fun and awesome way!

  396. Wow…what awesome inspiration!!! Thanks for organizing this.
    I have made about 30 finished quilts but have another 50 quilt top "flimsies" ready to quilt and finish. Just keep wanting to make more and more…thanks to all this inspiration.

  397. This is so cool! The quilt that I linked for the festival is actually my first quilt ever- and I just finished it this morning! I guess you could say I finished it just for the festival- I was motivated to finish it by tomorrow at least just so I could share it! I already have a second (baby) quilt sandwiched and about 1/5th quilted- I'm addicted! Thanks for hosting this festival- it is so neat to see all the beauitful quilts, marvel at the creativity and skills and reading all of the stories behind them!

  398. Hi Amy: I am making my first entry in your festival. Hope I don't get deleted. I think I followed all of the instructions. Thank you for this opportunity.

  399. Holy Macaroni! I'm #615! That's a whole lot of quilts. Thanks so much for hosting the festival – it is a lot of fun to see what everyone has been working on.

    Recently I was given a couple of quilts that my grandma made decades ago. It's been fun to admire them and have them as inspiration,

  400. I finally put up my entry! I was trying to finish another quilt, but I have this lovely one to share right now. I can share the other one in the fall.:)

  401. Hey Amy – Yay … Love your Bloggy Quilt Festival! Thanks for hosting again! Sensational! I'm in!

  402. Thanks! This is such a great festival!

    I have been quilting off and on for a few years. I have finished probably about 10 or so quilts.
    I feel like I have a lot to learn!
    Thanks again!

  403. Thank you so much for this opportunity to share our quilts! I started quilting when I was 19 and have no idea how many quilts I have made throughout my lifetime. I have made and sold several quilts and given many away. I have 4 quilts that are mine but they are made with blocks that I have swapped with friends. I have never just made a quilt from scratch just for me. Maybe I need to do that. My granddaughter has 9 quilts and she is only 6!! I learned to quilt through my grandmothers and love everything about it!

  404. What a great idea. Thanks. What is really nice is that it gives me the opportunity too see and subscribe to blogs I've never come across before.

  405. Woohoo! Finally got my post up! The quilt that I'm showing is actually one that I designed to take with me to International Quilt Market last week, and it's one of the first that will actually stay here and live with me!

  406. Yay! I was able to finally finish my post for your amazing Quilt Festival! (I am slow! :o)

    I am excited and look forward to visiting as many wonderful quilters as I can.

    I need your help…I linked up directly to my blog instead of my post…is there any way to fix that? I'm #626

    Blessings & Aloha!

  407. This was a great idea! I'm so glad I was able to participate this year. My grandmother was a quilter and I'm just praying that I can one day be as good as she was!!

    I have only made a few quilts, nothing bigger than toddler/lap size, though I have a twin size rag quilt that needs finishing!

  408. Oh, I'm excited — I thought I had missed the deadline and so didn't even think to enter. I was wrong, happily!

    Thanks for hosting this. It has been really interesting to read about other people's quilts and the stories behind them. In my opinion, it's the stories that make the quilts so very beautiful….

  409. Just tonight, I finished my 7th quilt top! I started quilting December 2009! I only have 2 tops created that need to be quilted & bound & 2 baby quilts that are just waiting for some TV time for me to hand sew the binding to the back. I absolutely love this form of creative expression! Thank you for hosting this festival & opening my eyes to so many wonderfully talented people out there! :)

  410. Whew, just made it in under the gun! :-)

    Thanks for doing this again, Amy! So fun to see everyone's quilts.

    Liz @ teeny tiny quilts

  411. Thanks for hosting such a fun event! There's so much eye candy and inspiration – truly something for everyone…or several somethings! Thanks.

  412. This is my first festival as I have only been quilting for about a year. I am excited to start browsing thru all of the rest. Thanks!!!

  413. Thanks for hosting this really cool festival. I love making scrap quilts, probably because I have been quilting for a long time (how many quilts – no clue , but more than 50) and there is so much fabric in my house. Certainly enough for brand new scrap quilts for the next decade´s quilts festivals…

  414. Thanks so much for creating and hosting this amazing space! I look forward to finding new inspiration and spending A LOT of time staring at my computer screen. Just started quilting last summer and have another free summer filled with quilty plans. Hope to complete a quilt a month.

  415. I love the quilt festival! I have probably made a dozen or so quilts, but I have quite a few I am working on or have plans for making. I enjoy seeing all of the quilts and being inspired by the stories that go with them!

  416. Oh, great idea, thanks Amy! It is wonderful to find so many people charing one's interest, isn't it? Now I must take time to read all the blogs.

  417. Amy, thanks so much for hosting The Blogger's Quilt Festival… it inspired me to start a blog!! Hope you enjoy it. I've been quilting since 2005 (when I got my first sewing machine). So far I am entirely self-taught, but plan on taking some classes soon. I also have never used a pattern for any of my quilts… I made them all up.

  418. Thank you Amy for organizing the Blogger's festival for third time!

    I have entered every time! I was out of town, but better late then never , right?! :)

    I should count how many quilts I have made! Currently I am working on two baby quilts for a friend of mine and for my nephew. Also I am working on quilting my blue and yellow quilt that I have been piecing a long time.

    Have a great day Amy and i hope everybody is getting over that flu!

  419. wow, this is my first quilt fest! What fun! Thanks for hosting this. I've made about 20 quilts so I love the inspiration….

  420. Oh, stink!! I think I'm gonna need to take a vacation just to have time to look at all of these!! Thanks for hosting, Amy!! Just posted my entry :)

  421. Thanks for hosting this! I think I've made around 20 quilts. Its funny — when I was trying to figure it out I was basically listing my friends' kids names to myself. Mostly baby quilts and about 5 twin sized quilts and about 5 picnic quilts.

  422. Thanks so much for hosting — I've enjoyed every quilt so far — it's going to take months to visit them all….


  423. What a great idea! Thanks for hosting this. I'm new to quilting, but not fabric so I'm thrilled to have a new way to maybe make a dent in my stash.

  424. Nothing like waiting till the last minute — but I have posted a quilt and linked. Thank you for doing this — so many gorgeous quilts to be seen!

  425. I wasn't planning on entering but decided to at the last minute. I really love the quilt I entered. I had so much trouble making it that I really love it now. Thanks for hosting!

  426. God help everyone else :) I did it. I created a blog and linked up to this marvelous festival :) AAAUUUUGGGHHHHH …. what have I unleashed to all you inspirational people? Forgive me :) Thank you for this opportunity and the push to get'r done.

  427. I just linked up! Right now I have one quilt on the go and two waiting to happen (one has been waiting for 3 years!!) but other things always seem to get in the way :)

  428. Thanks so much for doing this again! I'm pretty sure I've entered all of them and just love it! Hmmm…how many quilts have I made – probably in the 50s range – most likely more. I've had two babies and for the nesting portion I quilt instead of clean :) Very productive :)

    Thanks again!

  429. Thanks for hosting Amy! I've seen so many great quilts…I decided to enter one of my own, even though I haven't finished very many. Thanks so much!

  430. Amy! What an awesome job you've done, again! I wish I had my quilt finished, I'm so close. I just have to stitch on the binding. I have pics of my mom's quilt that she's finished. Maybe I'll try and get a post up about that. It's gorgeous!

    The move is over and we are now camping out at my in-laws until we can move into our house, about 10 days from now!

  431. Here I am!! Sorry I'm so late- just squeaking in under the wire! I have been looking through the blogs and entries, though- what a wonderful group of talented people!
    ~ Jennie

  432. Hi Amy! I'm late to the party as usual… but I showed up! I have about 25 projects going right now… I won't allow myself to have any more because I'm out of baskets to store my projects in! Looking forward to seeing all the quilts in the festival!

  433. Thanks for walking me through entering this Festival. I'm so glad I did! I've been quilting for good, long time, but discovered the Modern Quilt bloggy-world about a year ago, and I'm hooked. I'm a novice at blogging, but determined to shake my Luddite tendencies. Sometimes I get frustrated because I spend time figuring out the bloggy bits, time I could be quilting! But the inspiration and community I've found here is more than worth it. A friend told me that one of the first communities "built" when the Web started were quilters! Now I can't wait to continue poring over all 700 other entries. Keep up the good work, Amy. And thanks.

  434. Hola, Amy! No sé si puedo participar, porque soy de Argentina y no tengo ningún edredón terminado, pero hoy tengo casi, casi listo mi primer Quilt!, al que sólo le falta el binding. La invito a verlo en este post:
    Espero le guste y la felicito por esta hermosa propuesta! A las novatas y autodidactas como yo (aprendo por lo que veo en la web, debido a que no hay instructoras en mi ciudad y casi nadie lo practica) nos permite ver mucha, mucha inspiración y admirar tanto tesón, trabajo y belleza creado por manos patcheras! Un fuerte abrazo!

  435. I posted my Quilt and a link. I think the fan quilt that I posted is the hardest one that I have done so far. Right now I am working on two baby quilts using the Love U panel from Moda.

  436. Amy I have been reading about everyone's quilts and will continue all weekend. I love seeing others work and the great stories behind them. Thank you for putting this together!

  437. I left a comment, but it doesn't look like it made it, if this ends up being a duplicate…please delete me!

    Amy I have no idea as to how you are going to read all these comments, much less visit all the entries! I just entered, unlucky number 666, with only 6 hours left…don't like those numbers! Oh well, what is a girl to do.

    I finished my quilt with two of your wonderful tutorials and wrote about it in my entry! Thanks so much!

  438. Hi Mrs. Amy :)

    I jumped in here at the last minute and posted my favorite quilt.

    I'm excited to see all the participants. I will have to refer back several times to stop at everyone's posts and admire their work.

    Thanks for the fun :)


  439. I'm so happy to be able to participate this time! Thanks Amy for putting this together! I can't wait to check out everyone's work!!!

  440. This is a great event…I think you just gave me homework, though, I'd love to figure out how many quilts I've made, I'll work on that. I must tell you though, that I work on MANY at a time. My in progress list is always over ten! But I'm trying to get better at finishing them more before starting new ones.

  441. I love watching the numbers on this post tick up! I've been planning to finish this quilt in time for the festival for ages and I *just* squeaked in. It's gift and I've avoided mentioning it online AT ALL before now, so this is it's grand debut. I am ridiculously excited and so happy to be part of the festival again. : )

  442. I'm a new quilter and it's amazing to see how many other quilter/blogger/moms are out there. I was working on a quilt for my mother-in-law when I saw your link yesterday, so I exhaustingly finished the quilt today just so I could join. Thanks so much for the work you do with this and I look forward to joining (with a little better planning) next year, too!

  443. Thanks ever so much for all of your efforts. I do truly understand the time and dedication needed for such a project. I have enjoyed it immensely, thanks again.

    Bobbie Ashley

  444. This is my first entry in any quilt show ever, so thanks for hosting. I can't wait to go looking at all those quilts.
    I've made about 20 quilts/wall hangings/table runners, have 4 in progress and have been distracted along the way by numerous bags, wallets, dolls, toys and crochet. I'm truly addicted…

  445. I got in just under the wire!! I have about 10 sets of quilt blocks that are all waiting to be sewn into quilt tops, including my blocks from every quilting bee I've participated in. Crazy, huh? I really hope to tackle those in this calendar year.

    Thanks again for hosting yet another successful BQF!!

  446. This is my first festival! Thanks for hosting such a fun event. As far as my WIP go, I have too many to count and all of these fabulous quilts are only going to add to my list!

  447. THanks Amy once again for hosting the quilt festivial. (its soo fun). I finished one of my favorite quilts that had been waiting to be finished, JUST in time for the festival!

  448. In my head and my heart, I have quilted many beautiful quilts. Reality: about ten, plus several of those famous UFO's.

  449. Dear Amy!! What a wonderful quilt show you have put together. The quilts are beautiful and the stories heart warming. Thanks so much!!

  450. Hi Amy, The Blogger's Quilt Festival is a wonderful idea. This is the first one I've "been to". I have set myself aside some time each day to look through all the interesting blogs and be inspired by all the beautiful quilts.
    I can see I'll have to make a blog of my own one day soon.

  451. what a fantastic festival. thanks amy!! i've had such a great time going to all the blogs and seeing such fun/vibrant/fabulous/beautiful–on, and on and on with the kudos!! thanks again and have a great day

  452. OH! I just found this festival today, so I missed out on posting mine, but I will be sure to join in next time! Love all the quilts I have seen so far!

  453. Just wanted to give a late shout out and THANKS for once again hosting this festival! I participated in the last two but was working on a deadline so didn't get to post this time.

    However, I still wanted to SEE EVERYTHING! Today I just finished looking at the last of the 677(!) entries. I've spent the last month taking them 25 or so a day (interrupted only by a week's vacation) stopping here and there to follow leads to other great quilty stuff.

    As before, I found a lot of great new blogs to follow, a bunch of new project ideas and even voted on my favorite postings and added them to my quilt journal for inspiration. I look forward to when you do this again in the fall or next spring and hope to participate then too. Thanks again for all your efforts!

  454. Well it’s taken me well over a month but I finally got to look at all the fab quilts. Why so long? well I kept getting distracted reading blogs, and following links and having a great time!

    Thank you Amy so much for arranging this – and I hope that I can join in next year
